Penny Black Winter Cards


I made a couple cards for the PBSC Penny Black Saturday challenge for December which is either a Winter or Christmas theme. I colored this PB image with markers and added layers of Coastal Cabana cardstock and designer paper which were die-cut with Lil Inker stitched rectangles. These were quick and easy to put together and hopefully fun for the kids who receive them.


Here's a 2nd version done with Island Indigo cardstock and SU! dsp. For this one, I wanted more of the snowflakes to show, so I used one less layer than the first card.

I hope everyone is enjoying a nice New Year's day! My husband is ready for football, while I'll be spending some time in the craft room. We'll both be happy that way :)

Thanks for stopping by, and may your new year be filled with everything that makes you happy!
